I have a general good grasp on RC. However, once in a while I will have a complete and utter mess up of all the questions.lol is there a reason for this? _________________ Appetite for 700 and I scraped my plate!

I tatooed in my head to always refer back to the text and never answer on a hunch. Do you have anymore tricks? _________________ Appetite for 700 and I scraped my plate!

Legendary Member Joined 06 May 2007 Posted: 789 messages Followed by: 6 members Upvotes: 15 Target GMAT Score: 710 I am very used to doing a long passage with tough questions. THis is where I shine. BUT yesterday I bombed an easier set of questions and short passage. I learned that the short passages ARE a different animal from the long passages. THe long passages are actually easier because they hold almost all info in the beginning of the text. Short passages hold vital information to the main idea in both top and bottom of the passage. This needs to be taken into account when dealing with the questions.. LESSON LEARNED! _________________ Appetite for 700 and I scraped my plate! • FREE GMAT Exam Know how you'd score today for$0
